Thanks for posting the highlight. Remember, this is a highlight and here's what I counted.
Hash Seam Routes: 11
Corner Routes: 5
Sideline Nine Route: 1
Hmm, whichever poster said he makes it complicated for defenses is incorrect. If I'm a DC, it is easy to see you take away his Hash Seam Route equates to taking away most of VD.
5 of his touchdowns came with double coverage or more.
If you play a LB on him he beats him with speed
Victims: Ben Leber, James Laurinaitis, Demeco Ryans (x3), Gary Brackett, Clay Matthews, Clint Ingram, Aaron Curry, David Hawthorne,
If you play a DB on him he beats him with size:
Victims: Madieu Williams, Quincy Butler, Jacob Lacey, Jarrett Bush, Adrian Wilson (x2)
Go look at a highlight video of Antonio Gates... yes gates is more fluid and has better hands but he doesnt face nearly the same amount of double coverage as Davis does thanks in large part to Vincent Jackson.
